Voila!

Bow down to Voila! a new bakery in Allen where they’re selling that most noble of foodstuffs: artisan bread. Baker Jean-Christophe Blanc, a native of France, has worked at Buckhead in Atlanta and Eatzi’s in Dallas, temples of bread both of them; he also oversaw bread for the Olympic Village during the ’96 olympics. Located in a new retail center in Allen – which is booming these days - Voila! also does salads & sandwiches CB-style. Allen's def a hike if you live in dallas (tho no-prob for those savvy urban pioneers in east plano) but his bread & croissants are worth the drive.

1201 W. McDermott Dr. Allen 972-747-1272. open 8 to 8 every day how cool is that

You mean suburban pioneers, don't you?

If you're going to purchase Frenchy-style products, you'd be a lot better off picking up a pair of my newly licensed Paris Hilton sunglasses. I'm looking at that spare tire you're carrying around, and I'm thinking you need sunglasses a helluva lot more than you need another cream puff. Just thinking of you, dears!

And P.S., I think a girl named Paris knows all there is to know about France. (I was conceived there, after all.)

Hey ... the suburbs are the new Latin Quarter.

If the Latin Quarter were ugly, spread out all of creation, and populated by CPAs, attorneys and soccer moms.

TG: Is there one thing there that you think Monsieur Blanc makes particularly well?

Does he make pain au chocolat? That's about the only thing that would get me to exurbia... other than my wife saying "I wanna go to Ikea!"

THE GREAT DAY HAS ARRIVED!

Before I kidnap, I mean take my baby away for a little one-on-one time, I wanted to say thanks to all the fans for their cards, especially the ones with checks. Stay away from the house.

I have decided to name my baby Suri, which, despite news reports, does not mean "princess" or "pickpocket." It is simply the name of a beautiful flower spelled backwards.

A few of you have asked about Katie. As far as I know, she's doing OK. I saw her a couple of hours before my baby's birth and I noticed that she looked pretty much the same as she has for the last couple of months.

One more thing. There's a virtually unnoticeable blurb in the paper on Brooke Shield's new "baby." You'll remember how I told this idiot a long time ago that taking antidepressants is WRONG. And here's the proof. They've named the kid Grier Hammond Henchy. If that's not a sign of mental defect I don't know what is. What the hell is a Henchy? Is that what happens when somebody sucks on your neck for too long? HA! HA! Whatever it is, it makes you look like this. Like, GROSS.

OK, off to nurse.

Here's to "Tom Cruise" staying so busy with that baby that he stays off this blog.

I'D BUY A PAIR OF THESE SUNGLASSES IF THEY BLOCK OUT THE HORRIBLE IMAGE OF THE DOG KILLER. GO BACK TO FRANCE.

TG... in light of your well written little ditty on the discovery of communal tables by the plebes of homies here in the latest D, might I suggest that you issue a call to arms for your snarkiest supporters, including Paris (partaker of everything male and diseased), as well as Dog Breath (for comedy and bathroom relief on various participant's legs) and have a drink-off of of some sort while the weather is till sane here. Kinda like the Burger Belch just published in D.

Perhaps at Flagpole Hill, where Herr Dog can lope free, and Paris can view a vertical wooden staff unlike any she has seen before. Where we can enjoy libations of lactobacillus laden dairy products, homemade limoncello, melted B&J's (no Paris, not BJs) and perhaps a some fava beans with placenta and a nice Chianti (hoping Tom will come!).

Let us know... I'll supply the ice and napkins! ;-)
